Google’s Play Store extends its app paid usage to 22 new countries
Google’s Play Store has expanded its app paid usage across 22 additional countries in Africa and some other parts of the world. This news comes after Google decided to allow smaller markets to access its paid apps, which will surely be beneficial for smaller African countries.
Some of the countries in Africa that will be benefiting from the move include: Liberia, Libya, Somalia, Eritrea, Gambia, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Republic of Congo.
Developers are now able to control the prices for their Android apps that are listed on the Play Store. Google said: “Users in these locations may download paid apps or apps with in-app purchases on Google Play”.
This is certainly an impressive step for the African region as users in such countries were only allowed access to free apps.
Aside from the African countries set to benefit from this new decision, some countries in the Caribbean and Latin America will benefit from these changes as well.
